Cartoon Network debuted The Powerpuff Girls in 1998. It quickly became a big hit for them and it spawned a lot of merchandise. In 2002, Cartoon Network released a feature film based on the show. While it alright critically, it did;'t do so well financially. It made enough to cover it's budget, but that was still only $11 million. Craig McCracken said in a 2013 interview (that can now only be seen archived here) that he thinks one of the reasons it flopped is that a lot of the boys that watched it in the privacy of their own homes didn't want to be seen watching it in public. So was this another great installment of a great series? Or did it flop for more than one big reason?
